USD Continues to Carve Lower-Highs; Broader EUR/USD Range in Focus

USD Continues to Carve Lower-Highs; Broader EUR/USD Range in Focus

David Song, Strategist

Talking Points:

- Bearish USDOLLAR Outlook Remains Favored Amid String of Lower-Highs

- EUR/USD Needs Close Below 1.3570-80 to Favor Further Decline

- AUD/USD Threatens Bullish Formation Ahead of RBA Minutes

USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index remains capped by trendline resistance; favors downside bias as the USD continues to carve string over lower highs & lows this week.
  • Despite the greater discussion to normalize monetary policy, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) Minutes failed to present anything new that would spur a material shift in the policy outlook.
  • Focus now turns to the Humphrey-Hawkins Testimony scheduled for next week; may see further USD weakness should Fed Chair Janet Yellen retain a dovish tone for monetary policy.
  • With the USDOLLAR carving a lower-high in July, the October low (10,354) will become the next key level of interest.


  • Giving back the weekly advance after failing to push above 1.3650-80 resistance.
  • Need a close below 1.3570 (61.8% Fibonacci retracement) along with a break of the bullish trend in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) to favor downside targets.
  • Looks poised to retain the broad range amid the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the European Central Bank’s (ECB) non-standard measures.


  • Threatens trendline support as Australia Employment disappoints, China trade surplus narrows.
  • Would still need a break below interim support around 0.9330-40 to see a move back towards the 0.9200 handle.
  • Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Minutes, which are due out next week, may trigger another decline in the AUD/USD should the central bank continue to toughen its verbal intervention.
